Thermal Management

Thermal Service

Deep dives on components enabling thermal and air cabin comfort as well as management of heat dissipation in other critical component areas (for example Cooled EGR). 

Thermal management is critical for maintaining cabin comfort and propulsion temperature control in all conditions. Environmental concerns, emissions compliance, and greater penetration of hybrid and electric vehicles are driving increased value-added opportunities in this sector as well as difficult material and architecture-selection decisions.

The IHS Markit Thermal Service provides insight, context, data, and analytics for key technologies that are reshaping the thermal sector. Users can quickly access key insights from market developments, put context around events and technological trends, dive into deep data and forecasts, and seamlessly drive analytics to support their most challenging decisions.

Topics covered:

  • Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems technology and its management
  • Thermal management systems applied to powertrain components  (e.g., cooled exhaust gas recirculation, EV propulsion)

Planners and strategists use the service to:

  • Assess and forecast new thermal technology growth
  • Analyze the competition
  • Understand OEMs’ purchasing strategies
  • Evaluate OEMs’ thermal technology adoption paths
